Two renowned Chinese painters decide to move to the outskirts of Beijing to the artist village Songzhuang in order to live and work in the quiet countryside and in the neighborhood of many fellow artists. The design for the studio houses departs from the traditional Chinese Courtyard House Type – not so much in terms of its representation or construction principles, but more in terms of aspects of its spatial performance, namely shelter (shielded outdoor space within the structure and figure), introversion (all openings open towards the inside, not towards the street), degrees of privacy (gradated levels of privacy through the succession of courtyards), orientation (main living spaces with south orientation).These are examined and translated into an architectural Prototype that reconciled 3 different juxtapositions: the inside and the outside, the working and the living, the individual and the collective.

Located in the peninsula of Quiberon, the project of 4 units set up the conditions for a variable seasonal co-habitation with the proposal of two homes and two adjoining studios to rent one or more entities for one familiy or more.
This proposition generates a square of 16m x 16m, a small urbanity to take advantage of private or shared outdoor spaces to stay connected while ensuring their privacy.

This small 2-story art studio replaces an even smaller, uninsulated, structurally unsound, rat-infested 2-car garage. Through the use of a cantilevered concrete slab and cantilevered wood framing, the studio “pops out” in two directions to maximize usable floor area while reusing the original garage foundation.

A modern and professional `SPOT studios` is the first photo studio in Latvia, which has created a water studio. It`s located inside Panorama Plaza, multifunctional building complex.
‘Light’ is the starting point for the design concept, to connect the interior with the company’s branding concept. The interior emphasizes the presence of light in various forms. As the studio has no direct access to daylight, designer used different lighting and shapes – robust spotlights, tube lights, light bulb strings and daylight bulbs – to achieve a dynamic light flow.

The Alex Monroe Studio, Snowsfields is a new jewellery studio, sited within a stone’s throw of The Shard in the Bermondsey Conservation Area, providing a showcase for Alex’s growing international business. Consisting of a handcrafted 3-storey addition to an existing Edwardian single-storey shop front, the building provides workshop and studio space, alongside a boutique store, with meeting and dining spaces on the upper levels as well as a roof terrace with views towards London Bridge. The new building operates as a bespoke ‘bookend’ to the original terrace, creating a strong prow that completes the street frontage. The design maintains the continuity of the shop fronts, whilst the additional floors form a separate metal clad volume that sits lightly above.

These are the offices of Animal Music, a music recording studio. Our main idea for this project was to depurate and clean the caotic space of the common areas. We created a new space that contains a very long high table were different activities could evolve. This was the main intervention done were visitors are welcome to sit or browse though the flor to ceiling bookcase while waiting for a meeting.

A successful decade behind the console of his Manhattan-based Vault Mastering Studio, convinced engineer, Nathan James that he could shift his growing family back to their hometown of Phoenix and maintain a thriving business. Having developed a strong client base ranging from rockers like The Fray to jazz vocalist, Gretchen Parlato and comic Louis C.K., James was confident his skills would continue to attract interesting national projects. After establishing temporary quarters with a local mastering house, James’ next order of business was to retain the Walters-Storyk Design Group to create his new studio.
